Course Summary for New Mexico

To address the predatory lending practices, the New Mexico legislature passed the Home Loan Protection Act (HLPA). This legislature outlines the actions that creditors are prohibited from doing while working with a residential home loan that is protected by the act, and requires that loans have a reasonable, tangible benefit to the borrower.

This course will review the important provisions of the act, including a case study of how portions of the act were used in a legal court case. The first chapter of the course will review the act’s definitions and purpose. The second chapter will identify specific acts and practices that creditors are not allowed to do while working with a HLPA-covered transaction. The third chapter sets out the limitations for high-cost home loans, and the fourth chapter defines the legal rights that borrowers have if in default on their loan as well as their legal rights that can be exercised against creditors who are in violation of the act.
